This question was asked a couple of pages back. I have a gallon on mine and they are still tight. I think another guy had a couple of gallons on his and his were fine also. Just look a couple pages back and you will find it.

Hi Andy - I have published it as a link to Photobucket, I just checked the photobucket site only to find you cant log in due to site maintenance.
I would suggest that once their site maintenance is complete the link to the pic will work again. If not I will re-publish

A cross comparison between rear shock tower design on the Team version versus Standard. The tower on the Standard looks to be a tad shorter.

Default angled holed pistons vs straight holed pistons

The angled pistons have a constant hole diameter as well (i.e. same diameter on both sides of the piston)
these pistons do not affect rebound and conpress settings, what they do is increase 'pack' because the fluid has to travel through a 'longer' hole.
if you compare straight hole pistons and angled hole pistons of the same diameter, a straight holed piston works 'faster' then the angled piston cos the fluid travels through a shorter distance.
dunt know how it applies to the different track surfaces though.

I'd like to try em out but our local track is flooded out recently.

BTW, if anyone is interested in Titanium screws, I just found out that Square-RC (japan) stocks screws that can replace all the 4mm and 3mm screws. (still can't find Titanium replacements for the 2mm and 2.6mm screws though...)

Also, does anyone know where I can get Rubber seals to replace the press-in metal shields on the bearings in the MP9 kit? I love the bearings but hate the press-in shields.

I got a sheet of Carbon fibre graphite and made a new lid for the top of it, you have to change from hump packs to an inline receiver battery and also cut out the divider between the 2 compartments and attach some body mounts. I also have foam tape around the edge to ensure it is sealed well. It may sound like a lot of work for no real gain but looks are important right

Here is a photo of my handywork

If you can not achieve it by having no spaces as pre load on the shock (which am almost sure you can) then you can use the droop screw..also it depends where you want you shock position to be.. a more angled shop will lower the car a bit more since the resultant spring force is at an angle reducing the y component...

the best ways to measure the droop is by using a vernier caliper (shock length) or a right heigh gauge where you use it to measure the lenth from the gorund until the bottom of arm at the end.

what he is refering to, is ride height.. you use spacer, or shock clips at the top of the spring, and keep addin until you get the proper ride height. you will not want to screw in your droop screws to set your ride height.. cuz then you lose down travel of the arms, which will kill you in offroad track

Hey guys, will the new rear diff case work on the ST-RR as well? I want to replace the complete diff, and I've been reading about the upgraded case on this thread. If so, can I please get a part # and best place to get one ASAP? Thanks!

No. The bulkhead and diff are a new design that only fits the MP9.

Hi Scott It is made by OFNA. amain sell them
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...oducts_id/3828

I have always run one to keep the air filter away from the throttle and brake linkages but on the MP9 it has the added benefit of stopping the air filter rubbing the paint off the top of the body.
There still isnt that much space between the engine heat sink and the side of the body.

The Team version has the "L" shocks, while the standard will have the "M" shocks and lower shock tower to match.
